    7'6" Oceanside, from Grogs Surf palace. Snapped the nose off while learning and brought it to Inlet Outlet for repair only to get ragged on for it being a "Chinese" board. Who knew? I was just a kook.

    Actually rode it last weekend just for sh!ts and giggles., 1st time in 18 years, it actually rode pretty well.
    I'll never let it go.

    This is my first board on my first day of surfing. I was hooked 100%. The board is a 9'0" singlefin Hunt Custom. I've only seen one other in SC so I don't know too much about it. Great board though, I was on it yesterday morning.

    The lovely ladies in the pic are Ms. SC and Ms. Teen SC contestants. I was laying on the beach after wearing myself out paddling and not catching anything when all these girls start walking right towards me and the jetty I was near. They start taking a whole bunch of pictures and I'm enjoying the show. The photog asked if they could get a pic with me and I was more than happy to oblige. The rest is history.

    My 1st board was a 6'4" BAT that I had saved up enough money to buy brand new off the rack when I was 16, rode it a few times before I decided to "shot the pier" and ended up with several puncture wounds on the bottom from hitting the barnacles, ended up surfing it the rest of the session with holes in it, then patched it up with a ding repair kit, probably the worst repair job ever, then I proceeded to "surf" it for another couple years, but it was never the same again, I had such a hard time catching and riding any waves on that thing after I destroyed it like that. Probably why I blew my shoulders out, trying to get into waves on a board that is ruined isn't easy. I still have the board in my closet though, been thinking about pulling it out to see if there is anything that can be done to restore it, doubtful, but maybe one day i'll get motivated and do something to it.

    10 infinity cluster, thing was 4 thick. Had fun trying to learn to maneuver the beast with out killing myself or anyone else. Sold it for more than i paid for it a year later. It definitely made my 9 hand me down second board seem like a tiny short board. It was donated to me after a friend saw me struggling with the boat. Still surf a 9 cause i live in galveston and of course there are no waves in texas, but i do have a 66 im currently learning to ride.

    Those infinity's are ridiculous. My father in law rides one exclusively and it is a different animal for sure. Tons of float and paddlability but pretty much straight line speed.

    my first board was a retro, back before retro's were cool. Maybe it hadn't become a "retro" yet, it was just old and sh*tty. Yeah. It was super thick and had the most retarded fish tail on it I have ever seen. Loved it, not sure what happened to it though...

    80's 5'6" Natural Art twin fin. It was stolen by some UNCW phukheads trolling through my grandparent's garage on WB when I was 9.

    Perps were found, board was not. I have a similar Classical Glass I'm going to try and restore one of these days.
